Black and white photo of the barn at the Kinterra estate taken in the autumn of 1874. Various men are in evidence: one on horseback and two or three others standing near a covered buggy and an open wagon, both to be horse drawn. Barn is large and white. A stone wall is at the left end and a smaller building can be seen at the right end.
